Probably one of the few true “vacations” we had — even if was only for a long weekend. For Sandy’s birthday we ventured into Texas Hill Country for a quiet stay at the Stony Ridge Ranch. Was an awesome weekend away from TV and no cell service.
One of the benefits of Ohio State having a mediocre year in 2004 was they ended up in the Alamo Bowl. We purchased our tickets during the OSU/Michigan game got two extra and doubled our money on eBay.
